There are few things that are more annoying than chargers and other devices or devices that are equipped with dazzling bright status indicators. During the day they seem harmless, but at night they can feel downright offensive.
Unfortunately, somehow I always succeed in getting the products that seem to be the worst culprits. Last time it was for me a 6-port USB charger. I put it on the shelf, hid the cables and put it in.
Everything was fine. Until it was time for the night and the lights went out. The brick's tiny LED emitted a bright green light that was so aggressive that it somehow lit up the entire space.
So they can wipe them out and sleep in total darkness.
The DIY Method
The first option can be performed on existing materials. All you need is a piece of insulating tape, wax paper and a punch of some kind.
- Cut off a small piece of tape and glue it on a piece of waxed paper.
- Use a punch to eject a few pieces of the now effectively darkened dot stickers.
- Remove the wax pad, center a sticker over a status indicator and press it firmly
This should block all the light coming from the LED. If you ever want or need to remove the sticker, it should peel off easily and leave little to no residue.
Stickers that dim your LEDs
You still need to see these indicator lights – just not so dazzling. Instead of completely killing the lights, you can dim them instead.
Of course, there is a ready-made solution to the problem: stickers specially developed for "dimming" LED luminaires. One brand is Light Dims, which comes in a range of opacity.
For each of the four varieties, there is a variety package, each of which is provided with stickers in different sizes and shapes. It's also supplied with a customizable sheet that you can cut and use as you need it.
Using this route, you can dramatically dim the light without completely blocking the progress bar. In some cases, this can be more convenient because status indicators are typically not worthless.
The quick fix
If you do not have electrical steel on hand, you can not wait to get some light dims in the post, there is another way, albeit admittedly less attractive.
- Cut off a small piece of tape and place it over the status light.
- Draw over the tape with a black permanent marker.
- If the light does not provide enough light for your needs, try painting over it with a few layers of black nail polish.
Your status LEDs should be dimmed or scattered so they will not distract you Watching TV or staying awake when trying to sleep
